Jonathan Browning is a British editorial photographer based in Shanghai, China. In 2000 he began formal studies of photography, obtaining his degree in Photojournalism in 2005.

It wasn’t long before he jumped ship and returned to the UK where he spent a year exploring home and Eastern Europe with his camera. In 2007 Jonathan moved to the middle kingdom – China. His three years there have seen him ride the grasslands of Inner Mongolia, be chased by owners of illegal mines and be briefed on how to ‘correctly’ shoot the former president of China. Jonathan’s works have been published in international newspapers, magazines, online and in exhibition.
